its Girl Logic only a real Girl can explain that! i actually cant tell the difference between lingerie and a bikini...
Excellent question. It highlights the complete absence of standards of modesty in society. Neither lingerie nor bikinis should be acceptable clothing for wearing in public, in my opinion.
I always wondered that too. I feel embarrassed seeing girls in bikinis- to me they may as well be in underwear.
Well yes, but why not?
Why is it OK for men to go swimming in trunks, but not y-fronts?
I value modesty, I guess. In both genders.
i always wondered loool
i don't mind? oO
I have often wondered the same thing.
The bikinis are intended to titillate the public and attract the opposite sex, Lingerie Is for the enticement of a specific individual.
It is about intent and purpose. Much like women do not wear corsets and petticoats under their tshirt and jeans I would not recommend trying to swim in completely impractical garments for the sake of modesty. Plus it is about social norms. Not that long ago women wearing trousers was considered indecent.
With societies arbitrary rules its about perception. Bikinis have other purposes besides attracting guys ergo bikinis are not perceived in the same way as lingerie. <br />
Yup were all just shaved monkeys.
Prudes always prudes, there will never be a free world while there are prudes.
underwear is intimate apparel, a bikini is a bathing suit. Intmacy is usually left under covers and not on the beach.
One is intended to titillate the public, the other a specific individual.
Sometimes hard to see the difference, but where I live, I see ladys in lingerie, shopping for groceriies. Usually they are not attractive and the esthetical experience is negative.
Lingerie is a bit more, umm, suggestive.
